Parents told not to reward children for eating greens
A study of 154 children showed that just over 95 percent would eat a vegetable they initially did not like after just four weeks of being given it.
Daynurseries.co.uk talks about an experiment where researchers studied the children’s eating habits on 10 vegetables: fennel, chicory, beetroot, courgettes, mushrooms, peas, leek, Brussels sprouts, spinach and cauliflower (with chicory as the least liked vegetable).
Children were split into three groups: one group was asked to try the bowl of chicory repeatedly without encouragement, the other two groups were given rewards of stickers, a toy or verbal praise.
After the trial, 81 percent of children who tried the chicory repeatedly seemed to now like it, compared to 68 percent given a toy or sticker and 75 percent given verbal praise. "These results highlight that repeated exposure remains the best way to establish a liking of a food.”
